NFL player Devon Still is asking his loyal and supportive fans on social media to pray for his daughter Leah as she battles a serious complication from her stem cell transplant.
In June 2014, Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma and only given a 50-50 chance of survival. Leah’s courageous spirit as she endured multiple treatments and procedures has served as an inspiration to many people around the world.
In late March, Still announced that Leah was officially in remission.
About a month ago, Leah received a stem cell transplant to generate healthy new cells and reduce the risk of the cancer returning.
Still posted on Instagram on May 29 that Leah is now battling VOD, a common and serious side effect of stem cell transplants that impacts the liver.
Along with asking for prayers, Still wrote in his Instagram post, “As you can imagine our minds are all over the place but we're going to try and remain positive!”

A wildlife encounter at an Albuquerque zoo left one toddler with facial injuries.
The incident took place at the city’s BioPark, KOAT reports. The zoo allows peacocks to roam freely through the facility, which allows visitors to get a better view of the magnificent feather displays.
Eloy Padilla says his son was with a group of youngsters when the attack occurred.
Zoo officials speculate that the peacock became agitated after it felt that it was being cornered, and that triggered the attack on the toddler, who sustained facial injuries.
The free-range policy for peacocks will be reassessed by BioPark officials following the incident.
"That is why today, to you and to all who can hear my voice, I declare that I am a candidate for the president of the United States and I am running for you," said former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley at his announcement rally on Saturday.
Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is running for the Democratic presidential nod.
For now, O'Malley's up against just two other nominees compared to the increasingly crowded Republican field, but he still has quite the hurdle — overcoming Hillary Clinton's huge lead in popularity.
"Hilary kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Chipotle. Not to be outdone, Martin O'Malley kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Martin O'Malley event," said President Obama during the White House Correspondents Dinner.
The president may have been joking, but O'Malley has nowhere near the name recognition Clinton does. A March Washington Post-ABC poll showed O'Malley had the support of just 1 percent of the public nationally. (Video via Martin O'Malley)
But speaking to The Wall Street Journal, O'Malley says he has a strategy to beat Clinton — casting himself as a more "authentic liberal."
Given his history leading the charge over divisive social issues, O'Malley may be in the right position to do just that. As Maryland's governor, he managed to raise the minimum wage, push through strict gun laws, get rid of the death penalty and back same-sex marriage. (Video via Washington College)
He's also touted his seven years as Baltimore's mayor and eight years as Maryland's governor as valuable executive experience that Clinton lacks. (Video via USA Today)
"And I certainly have different experience than Secretary Clinton has, and executive experience matters."
Of course, the fact that he still plays live music in a Celtic rock band called O'Malley's March probably won't hurt his chances, either. (Video via YouTube / knmlover)
